Big Gay Ice Cream is Open!

Big Gay Ice Cream is now open at 518 Columbus Avenue, on the corner of 85th Street! It’s been a long wait for Upper West Siders – from the ice cream company’s initial announcement, to seeing the signage go up, to the heavily anticipated opening.

Big Gay Ice Cream serves ready-made pints and soft-serve creations including cones, sundaes, ice cream sandwiches, milk shakes and “gobblers” – a traditional pie flavor with soft serve, pie crumbs and whipped cream.

The ice cream company was born in 2009 with a single ice cream truck. Today, it is massively popular. They’ve racked up over 90,000 Instagram followers and have been featured by uber influencers like Food Baby (and Food Baby’s dad, Mike J Chau), and on major platforms like Food & Wine, Eater, CBS, GQ Magazine and more.
